17 Network analysis

17.1 Statistical Analysis of Network Data with R

Kolaczyk, Eric D., Csárdi, Gábor

This book is the first of its kind in network research. It can be used as a stand-alone resource in which multiple R packages are used to illustrate how to conduct a wide range of network analyses, from basic manipulation and visualization, to summary and characterization, to modeling of network data. The central package is igraph, which provides extensive capabilities for studying network graphs in R.

[Oscar Baruffa: Note this resource is a bit out of date, but because there are so few available on this topic, and it might still be good as a reference, it’ll stay in Big Book of R for now.]
